S-Supernova

 

S – Supernova is the first video of a series of words depicting a new kind of visual dictionary. Starting randomly by the letter “S” and the word “Supernova”, Sophia Lahlil has realized a video and photo-montage based on the results obtained on Google search while typing the word “Supernova”. Behind its artificiality and entertaining presentation, this video questions our way of dealing with a mass of information and images. This artwork aims at addressing questions on the evolution of language in the contemporary society from oral to visual, from exclusive to universal: each word and the concept it conveys are not attached to a specific definition but to a multitude of meanings.
